Casey James took part in a Guitar Pull sponsored by radio station WKKT 96.9 Kat Country at The Fillmore in Charlotte, North Carolina tonight along with James Wesley, Eli Young Band and Thompson Square. This was a charity event to benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital. The format of the concert was such that each artist played one song then it was passed to the next artist. Knowing how much Casey loves just playing, we imagine he was in heaven.
His first song was as uplifting as a song can be, the joyful “The Good Life.” Then the song that he still hasn’t officially titled, but known fondly as either “Love the Way You Miss Me” or “Miss Me When I’m Gone.” Next Casey played his hit single “Let’s Don’t Call it a Night.” Then Casey played the Matt Powell cover “50 Dollars and a Flask of Crown.” He finished it up with a song off his upcoming record that invariably brings the house down live, “Drive.”

The blog Munkybizness Magazine reviewed Casey’s four-song set, saying:
1. untitled track—This will be a favorite with the female population. Great song.
2. Let’s don’t call it night —His first release and sure to be his first Hit!
3. 50 Dollars and a flask of Crown—My personal favorite, brings back a foggy truckload of my Texas weekend memories
4. Drive—The “driving” rhythm on this song will get you a ticket if you’re listening on the way to work.
